Parisian house saviours drop debut album
Justice are Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay, two Parisian producers who first made waves back in 2003 with a remix of Simian’s “Never Be Alone”.
Comparisons with Daft Punk are not entirely lazy – not only are Justice keen students of their Parisian countrymen’s muscular energy and pneumatic bounce, they also share a manager in Ed Banger owner Pedro Winter.
If anything, mind, the young turks might just have the edge. “Waters Of Nazareth” yawns like a car crusher, mashing hip-hop, electro and funk into gleaming slabs of sound, while “D.A.N.C.E” displays a lighter touch, channelling Chic disco in a whirl of sugary keyboards and euphoric violin stabs.
